Detect Issues Early with Regular Eye Exams

Regular eye exams are an essential means of safeguarding your vision and eye health. To help ensure your eyes remain happy, healthy, and free of disease, all eye exams performed at Arc Eye Care include testing for severe, vision-compromising conditions. Your optometrist is trained to detect and diagnose eye diseases and other vision threatening conditions.

Your eyes can also give your optometrist valuable insight into your overall health. For example, conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected during an eye exam, even before you begin to experience symptoms.

Are You Due For An Eye Exam?

The Canadian Association of Optometrists suggests that adults between the ages of 20 and 64 visit their optometrist at least once every two years. However, most optometrists agree that yearly exams are preferable.

Depending on your risk factors for developing vision problems or eye diseases, your optometrist may suggest you visit more frequently than once per year.

As we age, our eyes require more care and attention. That’s why the Canadian Association of Optometrists suggests that adults aged 65 and older have their eyes examined at least once per year. However, if you are at risk of developing eye diseases or another serious condition, your optometrist will suggest you have your eyes examined more frequently.

Why Are Regular Eye Exams Important?

Eye exams allow your optometrist to detect and track subtle changes in your vision and eye health, ensure that your prescription is up to date, and address any questions or concerns you may have.

When it comes to eye diseases and other vision problems, early detection is vital. Many forms of eye disease don’t exhibit symptoms in their early stages, so you may not even realize something is wrong until you have begun to experience permanent vision loss. To detect serious conditions as early as possible, the team at Arc Eye Care uses advanced medical techniques and cutting edge technology.

Our Cutting-Edge Technology

To serve you better, Arc Eye Care relies on a wide selection of advanced diagnostic techniques and revolutionary technologies to detect eye disease and other vision or eye health problems.

These include:

Wavefront technology allows your optometrist to both gauge your prescription with extreme accuracy, but also allows them to fully map your eye’s refractive system.

This previously unprecedented insight allows your optometrist to better perform a variety of tasks, including meibography, autorefraction, anterior segment angles scans, and topography tests, and better assess your tear film, corneal thickness, and cataract density and is used to help diagnose keratoconus and glaucoma.

The S4OPTIK LCD Visual Acuity System is an electronic eye chart and is used to help your optometrist diagnose refractive errors and other vision problems and determine your prescription.

The Octopus 900 Perimeter by Innova is used to measure your eye’s visual field, which is essential to diagnose serious eye conditions such as glaucoma and neurological visual field defects. The test also provides full visual field scanning necessary to obtain your MTO driving license.

The Optical Coherence Tomography Retinal Scan Duo by Nidek allows your optometrist to carefully study your retina and optic nerve and look for signs of damage or trouble. OCT scans through the layers of the retina including the macula which is important for detection of early signs of macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.

This technology is also important in diagnosing different types of glaucoma by thoroughly scanning the eye from the anterior cornea, from various angles of the eye, through the retinal ganglion cell complex layer, and also through an optic nerve head scan.

The Nidek RT-3100 Computerized Refractor is used during the prescription determination portion of the exam and helps your optometrist quickly and easily measure refractive errors (such as myopia, hyperopia, or presbyopia), and determine your prescription.

Meibography is an advanced diagnostic technique used to examine the meibomian glands, which are critical for tear production. Problems with the meibomian glands can impact tear production, leading to dry eye.

During Your Exam

During the exam, your optometrist will ensure your medical history is up to date and address any questions or concerns you may have about your eye health and vision. They will verify your prescription and conduct a series of tests that look for signs of eye diseases or other serious ocular conditions.

If a potential problem is detected, your optometrist will work with you, and (if necessary) your family doctor and other health experts to create a tailored treatment plan to safeguard your sight.
